This MSBuild Task automatically replaces <inheritdoc /> tags in your .NET XML documentation with the actual inherited docs.

How to Use It

  1. Add some <inheritdoc /> tags to your XML documentation comments.

    This tool’s handling of <inheritdoc /> tags is based on the design document used for Roslyn's support in Visual Studio, which is in turn based on the <inheritdoc /> support in Sandcastle Help File Builder (SHFB).

  2. Add the SauceControl.InheritDoc NuGet package reference to your project.

    This is a development-only dependency; it will not be deployed with or referenced by your compiled app/library.

  3. Build your project as you normally would.

    The XML docs will be post-processed automatically with each non-debug build, whether you use Visual Studio, dotnet CLI, or anything else that hosts the MSBuild engine.

Additional Features

  • Updates the contents of inherited docs to replace param and typeparam names that changed in the inheriting type or member.

  • Supports trimming your published XML doc files of any types or members not publicly visible in your API.

  • Validates your usage of <inheritdoc /> and warns you if no documentation exists or if your crefs or paths are incorrect.
